Career Opportunities

Working for us

If you choose to work for the WMA or any of its Member Boards you will be joining an organisation which is striving to provide employees with a positive employment experience. Whether you work for us as a digger driver or as a member of the senior management team, there will be a considerable variety of challenges in your diverse workload and you will be offered real opportunities for career development.

Passionate about Drainage and Water Level Management

The WMA and its Member Boards have a very low staff turnover (almost zero): the downside of this is that career opportunities don’t come up very often – as good employees usually choose to stay with us. However, if you are offered a position, you will get to work alongside and influence a number of refreshingly straightforward, professional and committed people, passionate about Drainage, Water Level Management and Local Democracy.

Equal opportunities

We want our workforce to reflect the make up of the communities we serve. Therefore we welcome all applications irrespective of gender, ethnic origin, religion, belief, sexual orientation, age or disability. We consider ourselves to be a family friendly employer and offer flexible working patterns. Current employment opportunities are shown below.
